New NHL ice hockey franchise the Vegas Golden Knights has unveiled its game-day bus schedule to and from T-Mobile Arena through its partnership with RTC Transit.
The Golden Knights Express will provide fans with a convenient, safe and affordable option to travel to home games.
“We are committed to ensuring an enjoyable game day experience for our fans,” said Golden Knights president Kerry Bubolz.
“The routes offered through the Golden Knights Express will provide our fans with additional options for arriving to and departing our home games in a convenient manner. We are extremely pleased to partner with the RTC on this endeavour and look forward to working with them on providing outstanding service to our fans throughout the valley.”
The RTC will operate four Golden Knights Express routes during the 2017-18 NHL season that will provide non-stop service to T-Mobile Arena. It will also run during preseason game days, starting today (Thursday) as well as on Sunday.
The RTC’s normal residential fares will apply, with all routes picking up and dropping off at a temporary stop approximately a 10-minute walk to the arena by taking a path that runs north along Frank Sinatra Dr.
Each route will make three trips to T-Mobile Arena at varying times before the game begins. After the game, each route will depart the arena approximately 20 minutes, 30 minutes and 45 minutes after the game ends. If the last trip of any route reaches full capacity, an additional bus will be provided within 20 to 30 minutes.
